Reviving sports

Rashneel Kumar

IN a bid to boost sports development in Nadi, some sporting enthusiasts have formed the Nadi Sports Council to help revive the interest of sports in the Western Division.

Headed by former Suva soccer rep John Grey, the council has been formed by former well known sportsmen and sports administrators of Nadi.

The aim is to give back to sports and the community the wealth of knowledge and experience they have gained from it.

Grey said their ultimate goal was to promote sports and recreation as the forefront to creating healthy families and societies.

"The need to set up youth and junior organised sports and to promote parental participation is necessary," he said in a statement.

"As the alternative norm of indoor computer games and internet, that currently engulfs children's time, is not an option for healthy living."

Fiji National Sports Commission chairman Peter Mazey welcomed the concept. "It's a good idea. It's great to see they get out there and promote sports. It's only good for us, we are there to develop the sports," Mazey said.
